Weird Path To Fame

Posted at 12:10AM Saturday 22 Mar 2014

Whodunit diva Ann Morven achieved global popularity by inventing grisly plots, cunning murderers and a female sleuth who is a dunce at deduction.

Sounds weird, yet her short stories and novels are prolific in chills and chuckles, always entertaining. I visited her home in Kalamunda, which is a village in the forested hills overlooking Perth, Western Australia. On the back verandah of her bungalow we shared a pot of tea, watched wild parrots and honeybirds and exchanged thoughts on reading and writing.

I recorded the interview and pass on her comments here.
